Mentions: A bio-repository to collect, process, archive, and distribute human tissues and fluids for research has been established in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, UTHSC. The tissue bank currently provides HIPPA-compliant, de-identified, high-quality specimens to facilitate researcher queries for translational research. The bank is archiving large numbers of paraffin-embedded tissues, and is also performing comprehensive management of bio-repositories for institutional projects. The tissue bank at Department of Pathology (see Figure 1) is an example of utilizing the "Scientific Laboratory Information Management (SLIM) System" to have a more organized system and improve the overall efficiency of the collecting process for Tissue Bank.
